I'm not sure
I've loved the concept of this product and have purchased it for years. Today is the first time I've read *all* of the reviews giving me pause for thought (1) for it to be effective the label should instruct it be taken w/food. All these years I've taken it in the early morning long before my first meal of the day (2) Similar to another customer [hooey and phooey ] I've found several caps cracked and broken inside the bottles. I thought it was my clumsiness which resulted in damaged caps. Recently I discovered a cap(s) had split in 1/2 making a mess inside the bottle and spilling onto my clothing. Because I use daily vitamins, probiotics *and* eat BlueGreen Algae- both supplement the typical American over-processed, soil depleted diet- and eat salads and veggies every day I see no point continuing to use this product.

The Best Probiotic At This Pricepoint
I honestly believe that this is the best probiotic supplement available at this pricepoint. I've found others that are comparable but they often cost 3-4 times as much. This has a very impressive 15 strains of beneficial microorganisms in addition to a small amount of enzymes and whole foods. Everything you could want in a digestive supplement! I take these myself and also give them to my dogs a couple times a week.

Taking this blend of viable organisms, digestive enzymes, vegetable concentrates and trace minerals just before breakfast has helped improve my digestion for over three years. It certainly beats yogurt with all the sugar and artificial sweeteners. Three of the sixteen bottles purchased over the years had floating powder due to broken capsules, hence the four leaves for convenience.

I've been taking this for a while now. I think it helps my overall digestive system. I like that it has minerals too.

Great Value For The Price
As stated above, this product is a great value for the price. It may not compare to the top of line brands, but it does the job.

Soil Based Organisms
I have believed that with advanced age comes the necessity to supplement the areas of our body that may need additional help. The intestinal tract is no exception, and perhaps the most important, because all our nutrient assimilation begins there. I find soil based organisms to be a perfect fit for me. I also think that if we were more reliant on fresh local produce we would not have such a need. I believe this product is worth a try.

has made a difference
I've used a number of probiotic products - some have seemed to work better than others. This seems to really settle my digestive tract down. I've never used a product that seemed to help as much as this has. I'll definitely keep using this.

At first, I was not sure that this product would compete with the probiotics I had been using due to the relatively small number of CFUs. I was used to taking one with 25 billion CFUs. However, after researching soil based organisms, I decided to try it. I was pleasantly surprised to notice a change in my bowl function within a day or two, so I knew it was working, perhaps even better than what I had been taking. What I read regarding some SBOs for kids was that, the bacteria are dormant in the bottle, then multiply when they make contact with an aqueous solution, so the term CFUs isn't really applicable with this type of probiotic. Which explains why fewer organisms produced a better result, I guess. The price is economical, and it seems to be a quality product. Great value. I plan to continue taking it for myself and my family.

Highly recommended. It works consistently well and I like the convenience of not needing to refrigerate.

Great way to stay healthy
My cupboard is never without this product. Excellent results for years.
It is more reasonably priced than many of the other prominent brands.

I always take a probiotic everyday and have for years, and occasionally take digestive enzymes, but since I have started taking these, I have had no need to take the digestive enzymes. My whole digestive tract feels healthier!

Didn't help me
I purchased this supplement in hopes of helping me become regular. I just finished the entire bottle but have experienced no improvement at all. :-(

My wife and I have been using this probiotic formula for over a year now and it has helped us both in areas of digestion and regularity. No better value without sacrificing quality anywhere.

I have tried many, many, many probiotics and this one has it all! I feel great since taking just one everyday. I found only one other probiotic that worked this well, but costs 10 times more! I use this Soil Based probiotic with Swanson's Nutra Flora for an added boost. Can't say enough good things about this probiotic. Showed it to my GI doctor and he was amazed. Won't EVER use anything else! Thanks Swanson!

I was happy with Swanson's Probiotics, but this Soil Based organisms is amazing!!

A Daily Way of Life
Six weeks after taking these Soil Based Organisms I was sleeping better. Also this product helped to balance my mood.
It's gentle on my system.

Well I gave it a shot. Cannot say for sure if these worked or not. I suppose they do what they're supposed to.

Outside hooey...inside fooey!
I haven't noticed much of a difference yet, though realize sometimes supplements need to be taken a few weeks before benefits are recognized. I've been taking probiotics for 16 years and sometimes it's good to trade off...these look powerful! Some of my rating is based upon the condition of the capsules when opening the bottle...over 20 of them were cracked into pieces and it was a very dusty and disappointing mess.

Absolutely the best probiotic I've seen. It does it all for me.
